Kristin Lavransdatter (1995) DVD9
This beautifully photographed Norwegian film, set in the fourteenth century, is based on the novel Kransen by the Nobel Prize-winning author Sigrid Undset. Laurans has lost three sons and one daughter was maimed in an accident outdoors. His other daughter, Kristin, is the apple of her father's eye. Wanting only the best for her, he has arranged a marriage to Simon, the son of another landowner.
Kristin (Elizabeth Matheson) is sent to a convent after she turns 18. Her destiny is altered when she meets Erlend (Bjorn Skagestad), a handsome knight who sweeps her into his arms and conquers her heart. He, an accomplished seducer, also falls hopelessly in love. They have to cross not only convent walls to meet, but social boundaries as well. Their love cannot be kept secret, and suddenly the innocent Kristin is the centre of a scandal. Her fiance withdraws from their engagement, her father rages, and Erlends former mistress tries to poison her...
